  • random occurrence of regulatory element in genome

    Hi all,

    I have detected some regulatory sequences of 13 mer from genome sequencing study. The 13-mer has a consensus sequence of GNACANNNTGTNC. How can I calculate occurrence of this 13-mer in the human genome by chance? Is there any way to simulate human genome sequence and then search for the occurrence of such 13-mer by chance? Or as an alternative, mathematical way of calculating the same?

    Thanks in advance

    Wonder if this tool may do what you are looking for: http://bioinfo2.ugr.es/wordCluster/wordCluster.php

      Thanx GenoMax for quick reply.

      wordCluster is doing what I already did. I have identified regulatory elements from my genome sequence. Now I want to find out the occurrence of such regulatory sequence in the genome by chance. May be some kind of probability calculation can be done? Or if in any way I can simulate genome sequence and then use simulated genome for calculating random occurrence of the regulatory element.

      I already tried simple perl trick to simulate genome by creating array of NTs and calling random NT from array for number of times of genome length but that is a dirty trick and doesn't mimic real genome, like some genomes have different GC bias etc...

        A back-of-the-envelope approach might be to model it like rolling a 4-sided die, where the probabilities of A,C,G,T are independent and based on the global GC content of that species. If you want to model the dependency of a base on an adjacent base, then you could look into Markov chains (something like this link).

          Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
          by seqadmin


          Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

          Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
          by seqadmin


          Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
